I think it's screwy….They focus on the wrong thing!
“Blood Moon” Preachers build more faith for judgment than deliverance from evil.
Here’s a recap on the unusual timing of these moons:
• April 15 – TONIGHT marks a blood moon happening during Passover.
• October 8 – the blood moon will occur during the Feast of TABERNACLES.
• Another blood moon will occur during PASSOVER on April 4, 2015.
• The last will happen on September 28, 2015, another Feast of the TABERNACLES.
WE ARE TOLD THIS “TETRAD” (meaning 4x in a row) ALWAYS HAPPENS DURING A CRISIS FOR ISRAEL.
• Historically, a tetrad of four blood moons occurred… In 1493 when the Jews were being expelled from Spain.
• Another tetrad occurred in 1949 – soon after the state of Israel was founded.
• The last tetrad happened in 1967 – during the Six-Day War between Arabs and Israelis.
Does anybody notice that both 1948 and 1967 were times of INCREDIBLE OUTPOURING IN REVIVAL IN NORTH AMERICA?
John Hagee is preaching up a storm, asking: “Is this the end of the age?” Before quoting Acts 2:19-20: “And I will show wonders in Heaven above and signs in the Earth beneath, the sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord.”
Pastor John says, “I believe that the heavens are God's billboard, that he has been sending signals to planet Earth,” he explained. “God is literally screaming at the world, ‘I'm coming soon.'”
Hagee predicted that the four eclipses were signalling a “world-shaking event that will happen between April 2014 and October 2015.”
“God sends planet Earth a signal that something big is about to happen! He's controlling the Sun and the moon right now to send our generation a signal, but the question is, are we getting it?”
And THAT is my problem. God is not “screaming at planet earth,” much less screaming at His already paranoid and distressed people. The Last Days are a time of opposites, like Dickens' “best of times and the worst of times.” It is a time when “gross darkness covers the earth” and supernatural glory covers God's people.
2014 is the year 5774 in Hebrew…the year of the DOOR! A blood-covered door. A door that makes a distinction between you and the prevailing darkness.
Passover is the story of a DOOR covered in BLOOD to separate God's people from judgment. Thus… death in Egypt PASSED OVER places where the blood was applied to Jewish doors. 2014 – 5774 — the DOOR to the revival is upon us.
What about the occurrence of a blood moon at Tabernacles? Tabernacles is the great feast of the End Time harvest. It is when God tabernacles and dwells with His people. It is the feast of the DOUBLE PORTION when God pours out His Spirit on all flesh.
BUT you won’t hear that perspective from blood moon preachers. Our obsession with God “screaming” signs of judgment at our deaf, godless nation does not make us more powerful – it makes us miserable. The “blood moon” and coming judgement, the Israel crisis and World War III is good for preacher ratings but only serves to make us neurotic and agitated sourpusses. And this, at the very time we need to rise up, freshly anointed as Jewish feast participants carrying divine visitation.
Here is a date to watch: called the shemita, it’s “an economic reset year.” All debts are forgiven and we are commanded to let the land lie fallow. This is still observed in Israel today.
Think….”On September 17, 2001—Elul 29, the day before Rosh Hashanah, the Dow Jones average saw its biggest drop ever: 7 percent.
Seven years later, on September 28, 2008, (also Elul 29), the day before Rosh Hashanah, the Dow fell 777 points, or, another 7 percent.
Now we are coming to the third and final shemita since 1994 … could the coming blood moons signal a third strike economically?”
It’s going to be next year, the Hebrew year 5775 and the reset could come (25 Sept 2014 – 13 Sept 2015).
These dates correspond to John Hagee’s predicted period of “world shaking events,” but I’m doing all I can to filter these messages out in my head. “World shaking events” need to be seen in a light that builds faith for a “kingdom that cannot be shaken.”
